Affiliate marketing overlaps with other Internet marketing methods to some degree, because affiliates often use regular advertising methods. Those methods include organic search engine optimization (SEO), paid search engine marketing (PPC – Pay Per Click), e-mail marketing, content marketing, and (in some sense) display advertising. On the other hand, affiliates sometimes use less orthodox techniques, such as publishing reviews of products or services offered by a partner.
A relative newcomer to the affiliate space, MaxBounty was founded in 2004 in Ottawa, Canada. MaxBounty claims to be the only affiliate network built specifically for affiliates.

Présentement, je suis éditeur (affilié) de l’annonceur (marchand) Amazon.ca et Amazon.fr. Lorsque je désire faire la promotion d’un produit de Amazon.ca sur mon blogue, j’ouvre tout simplement une session sur Amazon.ca et je recherche le produit que je souhaite promouvoir. Lorsque j’ai trouvé le produit, Amazon génère un lien unique que j’utilise sur mon blogue. Par exemple, dans ce présent billet, je mentionne le logiciel Antidote . Si vous survolez le lien avec votre curseur de souris, vous pourrez voir le lien unique. Si vous cliquiez sur le lien, vous seriez transporté vers le site internet d’Amazon, sur la page du produit en question. Si vous décidiez d’acheter le livre, Amazon me récompenserait en me donnant une commission (autour de 4-5% du prix de vente du bien).
